More Bad News

June 26th, 2011 at 03:21 pm

My renter called and asked if she could meet with me at her mom's house, which is right down the street from my house. I went and she told me that her husband left her. She said that she doesn't know what she is going to do. She doesn't want to move but she isn't sure she how she is going to do it on her own. They only had one car and he took it. She has got two little girls. She is already behind $305 for June rent and I have very little faith that July will be paid on time. I will give her a month to see if she can get it straightened out but I can't continue to not receive any rent. I looked over my budget and was able to make adjustments to make sure everything got paid.(read put off some payments). I am lucky that I have been paying ahead on the mortgage so only a portion of it is due. I just hate that I can't pay the amount I have been paying.

    Sorry to hear it. Having a tenant myself who was slow-pay, it is difficult to have YOUR finances impacted adversely by someone else's. Frown Good luck - With my tenant, the only way she is able to remain in the property is by paying 1/2 the rent every two weeks. My problems with her started when she paid the rent at the END of the month. Now she is one-month behind, but is slowly cathcing up.

    Yep, I'd only give her another month. However, you might start looking for possible August tenants. Assuming that is legal on your part.

    That's sad for you, but really sad for her and her babies. Frown
